Dragging the bone

Miet Warlop (Belgium)

45 minutes

Walking tables, exploding fuse boxes, a pair of stumbling recent years, the Ghent Miet Warlop has bombarded us with the craziest images in shows such as Springville and Mystery Magnet. Her performances are a mixture between absurd theatre and weird tableau vivants. Until now, Miet Warlop has always worked with a large group of performers, but in Dragging the bone she's alone on stage for the first time. Starting point for this performance is a small ancient sculpture referring to seers who could read the will of the gods in the entrails of sheep. Warlop herself plays an oracle and goes in search of the ecstasy that comes after pain and sorrow. Brace yourself for an impressive stream of images and associations, which only Miet Warlop can produce !
